I don’t know, I mean everyone’s situation is unique. When you throw in livelihood part, it makes it more difficult. I guess, like I say if it is important enough, you will find a way, I don’t know, compromise in a sense that you set more achievable goals that allows you to look after yourself at the same time. Just go for more slightly realistic goals, shorter steps at a time.... If you need to look after yourself, then you look after yourself that is the most important right? I do believe if you keep active in the scene somehow, perhaps opportunity might arise that allows you to jump back in. If you completely gave it up, it is a bit harder to jump back in.

From practicing in a shipment container to playing one of the biggest stages in the world to writing a song for National Day, a song which still celebrated by many as one of classics. Electrico has done it all.
David Tan shares the genesis of Electrico (formerly known as The Electric Company). The band got together and how the shipment container about. It was a promising band and now looking back, David also looks at the mistake that he had made during his time in the band and how is the future of the band looking forward.
After not being involved in the scene for so long, we looked at the social media game and how it has affected people consuming music or the media. David, not just from one of the OG indie pop bands in Singapore and being successful at what he is doing for his day job, tells the tales of the club scene as well. Sharing the genres of the music that is being loved by the club-goers.
He shares the story of starting out as a broadcast journalist to behind the camera now as a day job. We share the appreciation to meet people, we never have a chance to meet or talk to. The advice he got when he started out to have shaped the decision, he made later in life is what everyone need to look into. We also share our experience as creative and content provider. I tell the story of being a digital marketing person and compare stories on both ends while creating adverts for social media and the traditional media.
We need that photo of the band holding hands together walking down on the beach.
Enjoy the episode and stay safe guys!
